Big Sun Habanero peppers get their name from their big and bright appearance that's larger than other habanero varieties. Also known as the Habanero Big Sun or the Yellow Sun Habanero, this pepper comes all the way from South Africa 

If you are wondering why it’s called the Big Sun Habanero, you thought right!  Also known as Habanero Big Sun or the Yellow Sun Habanero, it is a bright yellow and orange pepper that is larger than the normal habanero.  Two to three inches in length, this usually crinkled habanero has a combination of a sweet, fiery, and garlic taste, and the heat will stay with you from the minute you bite into it!  The Big Sun Habanero matures from green to an intense yellow color.  An easy pepper to grow, this is a great choice to spice up your meals!

Solid plant, good producer

This will be the third year I’ve grown this chili. The plants are sturdy and vigorous, and always produce large quantities of beautiful 1 1/2 to 2 inch diameter pods. I never run out of gourmet habanero sauce since I started growing these.

The Habs

They all germinated.

I am planting the peppers seeds in the Caribbean in the month of February into March,and I am hoping for the best.

4 out of 4 seeds have germinated! Looking forward to lots and lots of peppers! Got these thrown in as a freebie -- thank you!

Got a bunch of sweet peppers

I have 3 big sun habanero plants, 2 in ground and 1 in a pot, had good germination but all are producing a sweet habanero shaped pepper with little to no heat, not terribly disappointed as a sweet pepper was a good surprise but not what I expected to buy at all!

Hi Mark, please reach out to our customer service team and provide pictures, they would be happy to help! Thank you!
